Young Perth artist wins London residency - Art Collector

9 July 2012 | Caitlin Yardley, an emerging artist from Perth, has secured a residency with London arts organisation Acme.

The residency comes close on the heels of Yardley’s graduation from the Goldsmiths Master of Fine Arts program. (Her work appeared in recent degree show, alongside that of another Australian student Steven Morgana.)

Goldsmiths is one of the most reputable art schools in the world, with alumni including Gary Hume, Damien Hirst and Mark Wallinger. Yardley secured her place there on one of Goldsmiths international postgraduate scholarships after completing a Masters at Edith Cowan University in Perth.

The Acme residency is supported by a fellowship from the Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts.
